is looming. i am talking about eastern ukraine. a part of the country that borders russia. these ukrainian soldiers are rolling through one of several towns overrun by armed separatists who believe the towns should be russian. this is not right on the border, it is happening more than 150 miles into ukraine. dozens of people have been killed and people who live there are basically hiding out in their own homes. meanwhile, a team of international military observers that were held hostage more than a week by the pro-russian forces are now free. cnn's arwa damon is in eastern ukraine. >> reporter: that 12 member osce team finally freed, they had been taken hostage april 25th, accused by the self proclaimed mayor of being nato spies. on their release, he referred to them as guests. they appeared to be tired, but said they had been treated fairly well. the german foreign minister thanking the efforts of russian envoy and ensuring their release. the number two for the osce commission saying this is an example of how important negotiations are. but elsewhere throughout the country, we're seeing v
and requests from southern, from people requesting significance. russia says it needs russian language speakers all across ukraine if it feels tear interests are threatened. of course, russia has this is a risk of the ukrainian military. russia has tens of thousands of troops positioned in key areas on the other side of the border in western russia. at any moment, should they give them the moment to invade, they could do that. at the moment no such order has been given. the kremlin is saying they don't know what to do. they're trying to assess what their next move will be. there has been a conversation between john kerry and his counterparts here. he is calling on secretary of state kerry to do everything to do to stop that military infiltration in western ukraine. >> thanks very much. all right, back in this country hollywood has the oscars. tonight the washington correspondence dinner. plus, flight 370 will look different. what that will likely involve in this next phase next. [ hypnotist ] you are feeling satisfied . o a u.s. military tells the bluefin drone looking for flight 370 will be us
there they discussed the crisis. >> we're united in our determination to impose costs on russia for actions. as they move to restore order in eastern ukraine, it is obvious to the world these russianbacked groups are not peaceful protesters. they're heavily armed militants who are receiving support from russia. >> our guest is a fellow at the george washington university institute for public diplomacy and global communication. always good to get your perspective. punishing russia, is it going to be financial? is it the president at some point, do you see any indication he's going to be willing to go farther than just financial sanction, waver that may be? >> well, there are limited tools here. putin habs the strongest cards to play in this particular crisis. what happens in ukraine is far more important to russia and to europe than it is, you know, to the united states. the president has been able to inflick some costs on putin. the markets have inflicted some costs on russia. obviously, first and foremost, up to vladimir putin how far this goes. >> you wrote that angela merkel, chancellor
. fredricka. >> nick paton-walsh, thanks so much. this violence comes a few weeks after ukraine and russia and western countries reached a peace deal. now russia says the deal is dead. the spokes man for vladimir putin said the military movement is the last nail in the coffin. matthew chance is joining us from moscow. matthew, it is hard to tell what putin is doing to use the violence to push the deal out the window. what is happening here? >> reporter: actually, within the past few minutes, a statement issued by the foreign ministry which lavrov, the foreign minister said, look, the geneva agreement is the best way of deescalating the situation in eastern ukraine. a phone conversation with kerry and lavrov. he called on the united states to use everything within its power to get the authorities to end the military operations in eastern ukraine. this comes after the terrible deaths that took place in odessa. nearly 40 people killed. pro-russian supporters in a government building inside and torched by a pro-kiev supporters. that is not gone down well. the kremlin condemned the action. the
ukrainian soldiers dead. president obama promising even tough iter sanctions against russia. looks like a scene straight out of the movie. two men wearing business suits and fake were wigs. sprayed several esm employees and shocking one many times. no one was seriously thursday there. the robbers are still on the loose. no word on how much money they got away with. ivanka trump knows who she would like to see in the white house. her father. she told greta van susteren, trump would make a fabulous president because of his viewpoints and because of the fact that he listens and cares about people. >> as an american, i would love him to run for president. he is incredibly smart, incredibly knowledgeable. he has had tremendous experiences which would prepare him for the challenge. as a daughter, it's more complicated, obviously. it's a very tough life afternoon the political one is a challenge. >> well, we have been asking mr. trump if he is running but he keeps telling us, we will see what happens. >> and ben affleck may be great at run aring a gambling racket in the movies like this. >> wh
russia today and that trigger is the continued destabilization inside ukraine to the point that it would impede crucial elections in ukraine set for may 25th, about three weeks from now. and as the u.s. sets this new red line, the u.s. and russia are moving further apart in their views of the situation. the u.s. is blaming russia. russia blaming the u.s. today you have the president saying that clearly russia must be involved and they must be peaceful if they have missiles to shoot down helicopters. meanwhile, russia's ambassador to the u.n. accusing the u.s. of orchestrating the violence. he made the point that every time a u.s. official visits kiev, that the violence on the ground increases. you also have western officials taking a more darkly humorous look at the events tweeting ukrainian helicopters shot down in slovyansk, some elderly ladies must have bought rpgs at the grocery store, i assume. this is dark humor. they have a way to push back against the russian propaganda and it's really enflaming the ground and it's to support the paramilitaries and we're seeing the effects right
who push the video. >> do you think russia or china is quaking in their boots when they see these ferris buler's running the administration? >> leon panetta was not a child. to blanketly indict an administration and call the names you want to call obama and say that's the whole administration is bull. >> do you know who cares -- whoever runs against hillary rodham clinton for president. you know why? >> it's pure politics. >> you can use benghazi politics. you can vary it. the press helps you to bury this tragedy and you can do that. >> just admit it's politics. i admit it's politics, did i not? >> so you are saying, because we think it's bad, that's also politics. >> i'm saying this selected committee is pure politics. none of you are willing to say that. >> if it's under the guise it's politics, you can do anything? you can cover up murders? >> condone it. >> you can cover up knowledge, hide the truth, and say it's the video when he we know it's terrorism. it's like those idiots hiding behind comedy. >> by the way, we knew all this two years ago, but they didn't want to be
ukrainian helicopters. coming up, we'll look at whether an all-out war between russia and ukraine is inevitable and how the markets and the west could respond to the increased tensions. >> and then he cancelled on us yesterday at the last minute with no reason given, but boxing champ floyd mayweather has promised to come back with us today, so will he step into the ring with us, and especially with sarah who boxes, by the way. >> i would never go up against lloyd. >> he'll tell us why he wants to buy the l.a. clippers from donald sterling who has been banned, as we know, for life, and mayweather says sterling is a friend of his so there's a good chance, really good chance for a good interview with floyd mayweather jr. coming up this hour. stay tuned. stay tuned. and guaranteed one-second trades. and at the center of it all is a surprisingly low price -- just $7.95. in fact, fidelity gives you lower trade commissions than schwab, td ameritrade, and e-trade. i'm monica santiago of fidelity investments, and low fees and commissions are another reason serious investors are choosing fi
for some time now and one of the most crucial items on the agenda, the crisis in the ukraine. >> for russia, they're saying all hope is lost for a diplomatic deal and calling for a meeting of the u.n. security counsel. that is scheduled for noon today. launched a counterassault to dislodge pro russian separatists. now, ukraine says it's holding four suspects. >> and there are hundreds of u.s. troops now deployed to certain countries in that region on stand by in poland. also, the baltics, so the u.s. is a key interest here and watchful eye on what's going on. let's duoto washington where wolf blitzer and the political team are waiting for this news conference. wolf? >> this is cnn breaking news. >> thanks very much. we are following very important news. we're standing by for a major news conference. we're looking at live pictures from the rose garden just outside the oval office. the president of the united states has been meeting inside with angela merkel. they're about to speak. the president will make an opening statement, followed by angela merkel, then they will open it up to questions

for allies to remain united against russia's defiance of the west. but when the two leaders hold a news conference in two hours we're told the very first question will shift the spotlight to benghazi. and the deadly terror attack on the u.s. consulate there 19 months ago. it's firing up republicans once again who are outraged by a newly surfaced e-mail from the state department just two months before the presidential election those e-mails suggest that the violence be portrayed as spontaneous and not terrorism that could be blamed on failed policies. cnn's jim acosta has more for you. >> reporter: new e-mails revealed this week by the conservative work judicial watch have sparked republican charges once again of a white house cover-up for what happened at the deadly attack on the u.s u.n benghazi in 2012. >> it's disturbing that documents like these were hidden by the obama administration from congress and the public alike. >> reporter: republicans point to this e-mail used to prep then u.n. ambassador susan rice. >> the best information that we have -- >> reporter: who said in a round
is down a third. in russia, the micex is down a third as well. china still close because of a two-day holiday. they'll be back on monday. the nikkei slipping down 0.2%. the hang seng up 0.5%. the s&p sx. just take a net on this, 38 treasury yields 3.42% at the moment. we got down to 3.39%. the ten-year has been down to two-month lows, 2.59 was the yield during the session yesterday. we're off those lows at the moment. but maybe a bit of a short squeeze going on in treasury markets. we'll talk about that during the show. on the currency markets, the dollar, cautious again ahead of nonfarm payroll. euro/dollar, 1.36 and dollar/yen 102.46. we keep our eyes on sterling, 1.69. up near a five-week peak. that's where we stand with currencies right now. meanwhile, let's bring you up to speed with the latest in ukraine. reports of casualties in eastern ukraine today after the country's military has launched a large operation to regain control of the town of slovyansk. sources say pro-russian separatists have strengthened their hold on donetsk after taking another government building. prime
this is nato allies, particularly those close to russia and ukraine, have requested a more robust nato presence including larger permanent deployments on their soil. these additional troops will come from u.s. forces already in europe. the british may also be contributing. this as it's becoming clearer inside ukraine that the government there is unable to police and control its own territory. as pro-russian militants expand their armed action across the eastern part of the country. in the scenes of escalating violence in eastern ukraine, this one is particularly sobering. the ukrainian riot police sent in to remove pro-russian militants from city of donestk were instead removed, themselves, chased away and later stripped of their shields, bat batons, even their bulletproof vests. the militants were left to bust down doors and shatter windows. pro-russian militants are steadily seizing control of communities a cross eastern ukraine. slavyansk is under control. as are police headquarters and city halls in ability oaeight o eastern towns and cities. ukrainian officials say they're powerless to sto
highs. >>> we want to talk about what's happening in russia and ukraine because russian president vladimir putin is threatening an oil war that could send energy prices up here in the u.s. and everywhere else. jackie deangelis has that story. >> reporter: that's exactly right. it is that fear and nervousness right now that's keeping crude oil supported at these levels. of course we had had a bearish inventory report yesterday showing that the u.s. market is well supplied but that really didn't have as much of an impact as trades were expecting. now what is it that putin actually said. he told reporters this -- he said we would very much wish not to resort to any measures in response, but i -- and i hope that we don't get to that point. but if something like that continues, we will of course have to think about who is working in the key sectors of the russian economy, including the energy sector, and how. now investors are a little concerned that his comments could be aimed at long-term projects in russia with international oil majors like bp, shell, france's totale and exxon-mobil
on foreign policy. the new sanctions on russia, do you have any indication that they are having an effect. >> it's too soon to tell, but the president has been very deliberate, very measured. we've had a lot of engagement with our business community here, engaging their reaction to our sanctions and so far we have had their full support as well as, of course, importantly the support of our allies in the g- 7. >> want to ask you about an issue that has gripped america this week the nba scandal. do you think a $2.5 million fine and bap for life for donald sterling is punishment enough for what he said? >> well look, we support his decision. it's up to the nba and adam silver did a swift and thorough investigation and he reached a conclusion and we support his conclusion. >> do you think your fellow chicagoan oprah winfrey should bid for the clippers? >> i heard about that. i was excited to hear she was interested. seems to be a lot of buzz going on about that. >> sounds like you support the idea of him no longer owning the team though. >> i support the decision of adam silverman. i think wh

.2%, actually effectively saying the country is in recession right now. do you agree with that? >> for russia, yes, i believe they are in a recession. >> for russia. >> we'll know more about the first quarter later this month. i wouldn't be surprised to see it fall again in the second quarter. we know it was about $750 million there. in the second quarter it will still be significant. >> how has this not gone back into ukraine, the funding they need, when russia clearly is at the moment trying to destabilize the economy and create a federal country? >> well, this is what's facing ukraine. on the one hand it's a brink of crisis with macro economic problems. this is a huge program, $17 billion is massive, well over ukraine's quota at the imf and it should free up additional funding, too, from the world bank and eu and from bilateral governments, too, from the u.s. as well. but this has all gone on the economic side. there's a political angle to all of this, too. really. the center is now losing control. this is the worry in development over the past week or so, that these, the country is now cl
-russian separatists now essentially control who regions close to the eastern border with russia. ukraine's acting president now says all his government can do is try to contain the violence, because in his words, police and security forces are helpless to stop it. he says there's nothing they can do at this point. senior international correspondent nick paton walsh is live in slovyansk, ukraine. nick, i've got to say, this admission from the president makes it seem like a lot of the efforts going on, both by the united states and elsewhere at this point, are just completely futile. >> reporter: it's almost bizarre to hear the acting president of the country, ahead of the presidential elections, say there's nothing they can do to stop what's happening here in eastern ukraine, and i think there are perhaps two reasons behind that. one is to put blame on the security forces here, who he also in the same statement said weren't doing their job properly, were out of his control. that's effectively saying they've chosen to switch sides, perhaps, or are unwilling to shoot against some of the local reside

.s. officials say every day there is growing evidence that russia is putting together the unrest, even as russian officials want to repeatedly deny it. >> they want to assert that the people moving in military formation to take over buildings and then bring the local separatists in to occupy the building while they move on to another building, they assert that these people are merely local activists. as we have made clear, those kinds of claims are absurd. they defy any common sense. >> with moscow continuing to brush off american and european economic sanctions, republican and democratic lawmakers continue to urge stronger action. including accepting repeated requests from ukrainian leaders for lethal military aid. in washington today, i asked senator john mccain what that support would look like. >> you send weapons now. what kind of weapons specifically? >> look, they don't even have body armor or night vision capability. if it is all they're asking for weapons, i would give them aenlt anti-armor weapons, as well and set up a long-term assistance program. it is a morale thing with t
which gets to ukraine, russia and benghazi guess what, they are not going to have any of that now. >> i think there is a perception that the president can't be trusted. >> yes. you have to admit that perception exists thrnches is a perception. >> my point is he is the leader of america, all right? we're having problems on a lot of of important fronts. wouldn't it be better for him to just be more can did it? he doesn't have to run again. just be more candid. don't pars and run and hide and on i obfuscate. they favor democrats 43, 34. healthcare 43, 35. middle class 53, 32, president obama and the poll is very bad news for him. >> when you look at the broader numbers on honesty and trustworthiness you find the same thing which is that those numbers have taken dramatic dive. >> big hit. >> boeckman and now. >> benghazi won't get reported. >> he has over two years left in this presidency. >> i know that when public confidence in the leader takes this kind of hit it's over. >> i'm glad you are watching the factor you you are not going to heart benghazi stuff. i will hun tore home people cov
security person is here. >> a few hours ago. the security council met to discuss militants. >> russia nairing back with penalties. russian president vladimir putin warned russia may block western participation in the multi billion dollar energy center. the war of words matched more and more by violence on the ground. this, say u.s. officials is not what deescalation looks like. ups of pro russian protesters, seizing yet another ukrainian government building in the east. local riot police tried and failed to diffuse the standoff. u.s. officials say every day there is growing evidence that russia is orchestrating the unrest even as russian officials repeatedly deny it. >> they somehow want to assert that these people moving in disciplined military formation to take over buildings and then bring the local separatists in to occupy the building while they move on to another building. they assert that these people are merely local activists. as we have made clear, those kinds of claims are absurd. they defy any common sense. >> with moscow continuing to brush off american and european econo
russia and ukraine, a mere 34% approve. what does this does all add up to by a 53 to 39% margin voters say they would rather see republicans to counter obama's policies. are we seeing another set up for the gop like we saw in 2010? independents are more willing to vote for candidates who are against obamacare. they need to go out and be proud of obamacare and they should be using this as a message? what about the independent numbers? >> they are definitely important and i hope they run on obamacare car. i don't think that they will. i think it's really what's the message of the administration. i mean typically presidents don't do as well in the polling in their second term, this isn't a huge surprise to geeks who follow the numbers like you and i. i question what's the message, one minute it's birth control for women, and then red line he's not going to be enforce, then he's talking about the nba. what's the message of this administration? it seems like a ping-pong ball. on obamacare, it touches every single household and women that they are so convinced they have a monday noply on are
hospital. the suspect is dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. >> russia hit with new sanctions in the ongoing international pressure to stop moscow to keep from further military intervention in ukraine. 15 people will face travel bands and asset freezes including russia's deputy prime minister and military chief. this comes after the u.s. announced sanctions targeting 17 companies which washington says are linked to president vladimir putin's inner circle. >>> an investigation under way to determine why a plane caught on fire just minutes after takeoff in perth, australia. the pilot shut off the engine and returned to the airport. the plane was able to land safely. it's not clear yet what sparked that fire. >>> as we mentioned, all eyes now on the nba. a news conference scheduled for 2:00 p.m. eastern. what will they do about donald sterling? a suspension? will they toss him from the league all together for his alleged racial comments? coming up, we'll delve into this debate. a lot of issues at stake here. the league could be changed forever. what you wear to bed is y
kind of exogenous event, could be something as simple as russia ukraine becoming more difficult. >> okay. >> don't know. something out of the ordinary. >> i wondered if you were going to say growth is disappointing and perhaps won't get the growth the market assumed. if you look at what's happening in the market you have strong rotation. we've spoken many times about the high flying tech stocks, biotech, social media, that have lost a huge amount of value but you see weakness in housing. in financials. economically sensitive areas, the utility index is pushing up towards an all-time high. what do you do with that rotation? do you follow through? >> well, we look at the individual companies and their own valuations. so we think that some of the high flyers, which have come down, are still at fairly lofty valuations and hard to justify. we contrast that with other old technology dinosaurs like microsoft, cisco, hewlett-packard, where their actual results have been quite good and their valuations are very attractive. so we wouldn't necessarily look at the rotation in a kind of a se
sanctions for russia today and more outrage from moscow. russia is condemning what it calls iron curtain sanctions. the u.s. has imposed on seven russian individuals and 17 companies with close personal ties to president vladimir putin. today the european union added 15 names to its own list of figures close to the kremlin. meanwhile the obama administration is defending itself against bipartisan criticism in congress that it's not doing more. treasury secretary jack lew spoke to nbc's andrea mitchell. here's what he had to say. >> sanctions are doing what sanctions can do. they're affecting the russian economy. obviously we've made clear that we're prepared to take more steps should we need to. one could say do everything all at once or one could say it do it step by step in a way that most likely will be effective. >> germany depends on russia for a third of its energy and would be key to applying more pressure. by the way, german chancellor angela merkel will meet with president obama at the white house later this week. on monday, russia's defense minister assured chuck hagel that rus
near a seven-year high, despite what's going on in ukraine. the cac current is up 0.4%. in russia, up 1.2% as well. more on that in a second. earnings higher today. nokia leading the european indices after unveiling plans to return more than $3 billion to shareholders in buy backs and extra dividends. the stock today up nearly 8%. this is despite a slip in the company's first quarter revenue. although investors also appear to be welcoming the firm's new ceo. good moves higher from deutsche bank, up 2.6%. it also announced a bond issue to increase the strength of its balance sheet. no news about a capital hike. we did get more announcements today on the methodology for the european banking association's stress test which are coming out for the eu today. it will include fx an a spike higher in sovereign bond yield as well. we're focused on bp, the stock up not quite a percent in london. the oil giant saying earnings at its russian partner, rosneft, have been hit by a weaker ruble. that firm's ceo has been hit by u.s. sanctions. talking about the sanctions being announced by the u.s. and t
